So awhile back I started the BBs, my street team. BB is a great name for many reasons – Bree’s childhood nickname is BB, short for Bella Bree. Susan Schuman (a founding BB) came up with the Book Bitches which tickled my fancy but made me worry about offending some of our more polite members. BB seemed a good abbreviation while still making me giggle with glee at the inappropriate language. So far so good.
A little while later I appointed Toni Linenberger as Head BB because she was the most active of the bunch, bringing in new members and retweeting and sharing like crazy. Yay Toni! Toni has many brilliant ideas and while we were discussing blogs etc, we decided it would be nice for her to have a voice here on myblog. She writes thoughtful reviews, for one thing. Unlike my rambling thoughts on the books I read, her reviews actually give a reader the chance to decide if they’d like to read a book!
Anyhow. Tuesdays and Thursday are now devoted to Toni, and she may use them as she wishes, or not at all. I typically don’t blog on Tuesday or Thursdays unless I’ve forgotten to blog on Monday, Wednesday or Friday so it’s a perfect chance for you all to get to know our head BB.
And once you get to know her perhaps you’ll want to join the BBs. I would join just to get to hang out with her if we weren’t already joined at the hip. Maybe that should be joined at the blog. Just sayin’.
And while I’m updating the blog, I think I’ll make the BBs page much more interesting. What do you think I should put there? A roster of the BBs? Bios? What else?
Please welcome Toni when she blogs. It’s so much nicer to have an audience than to feel like you are blogging into space.
